Applying chaos theory to international political economy, the author finds that exchange rates and international capital flows display elements of both crisis and chaos. He analyzes, illustrates, and discusses these processes and shows how these findings expose the notion of a stable global economy as a myth promoted by powerful economic, political, and intellectual interests. Case studies of Boeing, Microsoft, Nike, and the Frank Russell Company (the world's largest pension fund management company) are used to explore the economic interests. Finally, the political interests and the threat to interests in the economics profession are examined. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
